Creative Catalyst I: Artists as the Cultural Instigators of Social Innovation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Artists are the de-facto cultural mediators and instigators of the world, channeling art to create an open and liberating space to critique and examine issues. Learn about how art can catalyze awareness through non-rational channels, opening up dialogue and critical reflection through artistic expression, storytelling and creation.
